Chest Wall Tumor Chemotherapy Treatment

One way of treating chest wall tumors is through Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a treatment that uses drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells. It can be given by mouth, injection, or infusion, or on the skin, depending on the type and stage of the cancer being treated.

Radiation Therapy Treatment for Chest Wall Tumors

Radiation therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses various forms of radiation to kill cancer cells or slows their growth by damaging their DNA. At the Vasek Polak Radiation Oncology Department, our patients have access to leading-edge radiation therapy technologies to shrink and kill cancer cells.


Surgical Removal of Chest Wall Tumor

Chest wall resection and reconstruction is the primary surgical option for chest wall tumors. A portion of the rib cage must be removed to eradicate a chest wall tumor. The reconstruction (replacement) of the chest wall is created using prosthetic materials or adjacent muscle, mesh or mesh with “plastic” material.
